Meet Mike, The Most Radioactive Fish Ever From Fukushima

Meet Mike, The Most Radioactive Fish Ever From Fukushima (ZeroHedge, Jan 18, 2013):

Almost two years after the awful nuclear disaster occurred, a fish caught near Fukushima on Friday January 18th had a record-breaking level of radioactive contamination over 2500x the legal limit. TEPCO measured ‘Mike the Murasoi’ at 254,000 becquerels per kilogram (with the limit for edible seafood at 100 becquerels). As Le Monde reports, the previous record (caught on August 21st 2012) was a mere 25,800 becquerels/kg. As further precautions, TEPCO is installing new nets 20km around the Fukushima Daichi site to avoid highly contaminated fish gettig too far and being consumed by other species. While Mike’s family are no doubt distraught (at him being caught and being so radioactive), it appears (somewhat disappointingly) that there is no apparent third eye, lazer fins, legs, or other ‘expected’ ‘blinky’ malformations.Mike – the slightly crispy looking Marusoi…

Doesn’t look anything like Blinky…

  1. My goodness, nets set at 20km from the hot spot. Do they really believe that is a safe distance from the radiation that is crossing the Pacific Ocean and is in the Jet Stream of the Pacific? Are the fish outside that 20 km free of contaminates and edible? I don’t thnk so. Once a fish consumer no longert.
    Please keep reporting occurances, it’s our only way of getting at the truth, job well done. Thank you
